Thank you to all of you for your support, votes, and consideration for "Episodes of An Aquarius" for the 63rd GRAMMY Awards. It may be a long shot for a nomination, but it means so much to you all for the kind words. Wish us luck

Thank you to those who had such kind things to say about the album: 

I'm listening to episodes of aquarius and what a STUNNING opening! The violinist is incredible! I love this!!! I don't hear much violin lead in the jazz category and I'm so into it!I'm so glad I saw this now

Thank you for the CD Justin. I'm finally getting a chance to really listen to it. It's excellent in every way - full of deep sentiment, good taste, wonderful solos and accompaniment, cool arrangements and great production. . . . And the painting!!?? Didn't even know that side of Miss Cava who already was on my most talented persons I've ever met list!  I love homegrown projects like this that exude quality from every angle. Congrats to all.

-John Santos- 

Listening to your submissions now. So beautiful! "Episodes of an Aquarius: The 25th Street Sessions" is perfect Sunday morning music.  Its a joy. Thank you!

Justin's violin on Dont Get Around Much Anymore...very cool! added all on spotify and listening 

-Annemarie Picerno-

I also loved Justin's amazing violin on "Episodes of an Aquarius." The whole album is exquisite. The production on all three albums is top notch... you are a quite a producer! It's very interesting to me that Justin's last name is Ouellet. My producer is EJ Ouellette, who is also a wonderful violinist. The two of them should definitely meet! Such a unique last name, with only one letter difference. Wishing you the best of luck with all of your projects! All my best-

BZ and I met on FB during the FYC campaigning so I went to check out your album and saw Nuages which caught my eye immediately, as we do that song every time Fabrice and I do Gypsy Jazz gigs that I sing in French, mais oui :)  Then I saw For Sephora, and Don't Get Around Much Anymore and of course, needed to know more about you. You never know what you are going to find during the FYC campaign. It's a pleasure to e-meet you and hear you. Your playing is wonderful! You definitely understand the Grappelli and Jazz Manouche spirit.  It's so great meeting new people who play this style. 

I just wanted to let you know how great your playing is and how much I am enjoying your album. I'm playing it right now. Stay in touch via email and/or FB as I'd like to keep you in mind the next time we record and need some violin.
